Holy crap. I thought I wrote long threads to protest. KI Sawyer AFB, sir, I salute you.

The fact that occupied (not firing) but occupied artillery is open game in uncap main is news to me. Been playing here for 8-9 years now I believe.

Ok - so by that same criteria if I get popped by a tank that is in main, I can respawn clear across the map, take seconds or minutes to traverse the map & ignore kill and death logs while doing so, and attack the tank in the main - ignoring any deaths, tank movements or respawns that have occurred regarding that tank and player in between.



This is also surprising to me. I would agree with Sawyer as the burden is on the aggressor that is spending time to approach and engage a target to ensure they're actually shooting a legitimate target. There may be a mixup where a teammate requests assistance with a particular unit at a main and so that is all the info they have, but if they're seeing [MLRS] in the kill logs and don't monitor it to see if that person is killed before engaging it. :|

Yesterday, I would have told you that person shooting a newly spawned person (same person or not) in a new piece of arty could get banned for firing into uncap main.

Sorry - details and clear explanations come with the job description. :)

Ok.... so now that brings it to at least 3 of us that were confused as to the un-written rule regarding the MLRS - and by a server vet. I'd have to say at this point it certainly calls for some inclusionary language in the rules so it can be referenced.

Game server host seems to have network problems tonight.
Will still be the same address once back online.

This is the thread that never ends
It just goes on and on my friends
Some people started arguing, not knowing what it was
And will continue arguing forever just because...
